My old iPhone 3G, it has been jailbroken, so it cannot be upgraded from 4.x, but it still works well as a phone, email, contacts. I use it as a backup phone and it is always connected to GMail, with my contacts and calendar syncing. I have not tested any other functionality recently, but ask me to in this thread. It only needs a SIM and you are away.

Please don't buy this if you have no experience with jailbroken phones. I no longer have a need for this backup device as I have another more recent model and I loath to send it to the tip.

Includes charger as pictured. Has had a screen skin from the day I bought it. Would make a great backup phone or phone for somebody with simple expectations or maybe you know how to upgrade it despite the Jailbreak.

Ask questions.

$30 includes shipping to anywhere in NZ.

Hey, have you listed a price, location and how much shipping would be to other parts of New Zealand? Also if you are asking for a PM make sure your Privacy settings allow your account to receive PM otherwise people can't contact you. Also note if you are selling something we ask you to offer to other members first. Links to private sales (including Trade Me posts) aren't accepted anymore and will be removed.

You were saying it cannot be upgraded because it has been jailbroken, but the real reason it cant be upgraded is because the maximum version is 4.2 (which it is probably already on)
